عنوان مقاله [English]
This study is an attempt to apply a semiotic approach to a short story by Hedāyat called Dāsh Akol. The paper, in order to capture the explicit and implicit meanings of the text, takes advantage of all micro and macro elements of the story. Meaning is a spatial and abstract entity and would not be actualized unless it is expressed by language. In Dāsh Akol, not only the phones, words, phrases and sentences but the very text indicate that there is a harmony between the general atmosphere and the language of the story. The study also proves that the linguistic mechanisms and strategies put into effect the intended meanings.
